WARWICK SCHOOL SELECTED AS A FINALIST FOR THE INDEPENDENT BOYS' SCHOOL OF THE YEAR AWARD

Warwick School is delighted to announce that we have been selected as a Finalist for the Boys’ School category in the Independent Schools of the Year 2020 awards.

The awards were launched in 2018 to highlight the excellence of the student experience in independent schools. The boys’ school category specifically looks for schools that are ‘providing an outstandingly rich experience for students, allowing boys to grow and develop through access to innovative and meaningful programmes’.

Some of the initiatives highlighted in the award include academic enhancement such as the Year 8 critical thinking programme and the bespoke Philosophy qualification taught in Year 10, developed in association with the NCH London. Our exceptional pastoral care, sport for all ethos and community initiatives such as the Year 9 Pickard Street programme have also been highlighted, as well as our innovative Year 7 music scheme.

Mr Barker, Head Master of Warwick School commented, “I am delighted that we have been selected as a finalist for this national award amongst other exceptional schools across the UK. Warwick School has a long history of providing an outstanding, all round education for our pupils. High academic expectations and achievements, together with outstanding pastoral care and exceptional co-curricular provision make Warwick School a wonderful place to be educated. It is testament to our exceptional staff that we have been nominated for this award.”

EDDIE JONES APPOINTMENT AS ENGLAND'S HEAD COACH

The news of Eddie Jones’ appointment as England’s head coach was met with excitement by boys from Warwick School today.

As former head coach of Japan, Jones and the Japanese team were based at Warwick School for two weeks during the world cup.  Warwick boys from the 1st XV were thrilled to receive a coaching session from not only Eddie Jones but also former England captain Steve Borthwick, who is rumoured to be joining Eddie on his coaching team.

Mark Nasey, Director of Rugby at Warwick School, said “Having witnessed a number of the training sessions there is no question that Eddie is of  the necessary international standard to drive England forward given the right support from the RFU. We wish him and the England squad all the very best for the future.

 

 

MINDFULNESS AND WELL-BEING

Warwick School has now joined a select few schools to start teaching ‘Mindfulness and Well-being’ within the curriculum.

At a time when mental health challenges amongst young people in schools are greater than ever, Warwick School is putting mindfulness into the curriculum.  Mindfulness courses for Sixth Form and for staff have been offered for the past two years and now all pupils in Year 10 will have the opportunity to learn the skills of mindfulness. This is part of a wider programme in which the school is taking a more preventative approach trying to build resilience and good mental health in pupils, protecting against the many challenges today’s young people face. This initiative Warwick School has taken, falls at the same time as the Government is releasing its final report (on October 20, 2015), with recommendations for how mindfulness training could help within education, as well as other sectors. 

There is extensive scientific evidence that mindfulness practice can foster habits that promote a better quality of life and provide tools for the better management of the stresses and pressures of modern living. It has been shown that mindfulness practice can improve behaviour, learning, emotional literacy and raise self-esteem.

Sixth Formers at Warwick School have had the opportunity to study mindfulness in their lunch breaks for the past two years and have given very positive feedback, citing improved concentration, better memory, better sleep and better crisis management, as some of the positive outcomes. 

Pupils are taught a simple technique to focus attention on their breathing which enables them to take control of their wandering or worrying minds. They are taught “beditation” - more commonly called a body scan - in which they learn to focus on the inner sensations they feel as a means to help them to sleep better. The school is using a course designed by ‘Mindfulness in Schools’ called ‘.b’ (dot-be) meaning Stop and Be. This course is also a basis for ongoing active research into the benefits of mindfulness amongst children and teenagers. 

Revd. Martin Hewitt, teacher of Religion and Philosophy at Warwick School, who leads the Mindfulness programme says, “People spend a lot of time worrying about things that are in the past, wondering if we could or should have done something differently, and spending a lot of time anticipating and sometimes fearing the future. As a result we miss what is happening in this moment - the joy of this fleeting moment that can never be experienced again. Mindfulness helps us to be aware of the ‘now’ by focussing on what we feel in each instant as it passes by. It brings us into the present.”

The modern school pupil faces many pressures - to meet the expectations of their parents, to perform academically, to be sporting or musical, and particularly to fit into the world of his or her peers. The teaching of Mindfulness is part of a wider programme of teaching Personal Well-being. Pupils in years 7 and 8 at Warwick School are learning about the benefits of optimism, understanding character strengths and other positive mental attitudes. Through this programme Warwick hopes to make their pupils more resilient in their lives and grow into happy, mature young men.

Gus Lock, Head Master of Warwick School said, “There can be nothing more important than the well-being of our pupils, both in body and mind and, at a time when there are unprecedented concerns nationally, we must do all we can to support the mental health of our children. Our boys and staff have engaged really enthusiastically with Mindfulness, one of many things we are doing to help in this important area.”
